Event Details

Countering violent extremism remains a critical security challenge confronting Western democratic societies.  Policy makers face difficult questions about how to prevent their citizens from engaging in terrorism, what to do with citizens that seek to travel abroad to fight in “jihad,” and how to minimize the potential for violent attacks when fighters return to their countries of origin.  Local communities also have an important role to play in countering violent extremism.

This conference addresses these challenges through an exchange of ideas and perspectives among researchers, practitioners and the public.

The conference is being organized under the leadership of Professor Michael Kenney, Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs.

Registration is required.    

Please note: no tickets will be mailed.  Please bring your email confirmation to the event.

This conference is being hosted by the European Studies Center and European Union Center of Excellence (EUCE/ESC) at the University Center for International Studies (UCIS) and is  made possible in part through funding from the European Union, Graduate School for Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), the Matthew B. Ridgway Center for Security Studies, Global Studies Center, and Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies (CERIS).
